In short: Excellent Race In full: Plenty of marshalls, weather was just right and the setting was great. Challenging enough in places so it wasn't easy and the hill between miles 6 & 7 certainly made you work!
Stadium announcer was great, momento, while unusual, was a nice touch and something different from the norm.
In short: Extremely well organised race. In full: There might have been more marshals than runners! At times it seemed like it anyway.
As ever, a very well organised race by the Spartans. Nice start/finish setting with almost a lap of the track to finish the race. The changing/baggage/announcer/everything was excellent! Very well supported by friends/families and the locals. I couldn't see the point of the metal 'shoe' memento though...a shirt would've been better.
In short: Nice fast run In full: Fairly flat and fast, only real tough areas are coming out of the underpass's. Well organised and nice track finish in front of the grandstand. Date of review: November 9, 2011
In short: My first HM and I can not fault it! In full: From the off this race is perfectly organised and supported throughout. A wonderful atmosphere with amazing scenery to go with it. Yes there are some hills but this is a fast race as far as I am concerned with a few miles of flats through Fairlands Valley Parka and the Stevenage Show ground leading to a nice home straight. The race is mostly on the Stevenage cycle tracks with support from the locals. Would recommend this race to anyone planning to run their 1st HM, this was my 1st HM and I loved every minute of it!
